Which actor says their dialogues all wrong? VOTE!

Not everyone in Bollywood gets their dialogues right. We take a look.

Some of the best-written lines can single-handedly be ruined by a feeble dialogue delivery.

In the past, seasoned actors like Hema Malini, Sridevi, Karisma Kapoor and Akshay Kumar have been criticized for the same. But their talent and hard work in making this shortcoming as indistinct as possible ensured the road to stardom wasn’t too bumpy.

Not everyone’s passed the muster yet.

Here’s a list of star constantly criticised for their grating speech.

All you have to do is VOTE for your LEAST favourite at the end of this slide show.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Ash’s screechy texture and hasty ramblings coupled with a manic giggle don’t really do any favours when playing a woman of substance.

Perhaps she should take tips from her paa-in-law and his celebrated baritone.

If it’s not her constant pout then it’s her phirang accent but something’s just not right about Nargis Fakhri’s ‘bada bada bada’ speak.

She may the toast of Bollywood right now. But before the Queen star won everyone’s hearts, she was universally ridiculed for her wobbly accent, especially the one involving a quarter of vodka, in Tanu Weds Manu.

Kangna Ranaut’s worked hard on her speech since and shown marked improvement.

Agree?

If only her garbled dialogue delivery would demonstrate half the finesse of her wardrobe, the pretty Sonam Kapoor would fare so much better in her career.

From a scratchy sand paper to a perpetual sore throat, Rani Mukerji’s croaky voice is the butt of relentless jokes.

Despite her best efforts to minimize the damage, it’s the only pesky flaw from an otherwise superlative actress.

Saif Ali Khan worked real hard to sound menacing in Omkara.

Barring that one exception, his anglicised accent and funny drone make it hard to take the nawaab seriously.

Especially as Bullett Raja.

Trust Prateik Babbar to make a bad film an insufferable one with his squeaky whines in one tepid performance after another -- especially after his scene-stealing turn in his debut film, Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Naa.

Katrina Kaif may not have known a word of Hindi when she began working in Bollywood but that phoren-return lisp is long past its cuteness date.

In Barfi!, no one complained since her voiced was dubbed by someone else.

The truth of Ileana D’Cruz’s shrill, sprinting and yelping voice came out only after Phata Poster Nikla Hero.

Despite a peculiar nasal drawl, Dharmendra’s angry outbursts and Sunny Deol’s furious dialoguebaazi caught the fancy of an entire nation.

Too bad Bobby, with his stuffy, floundering, down-with-a-terrible-cold whir is not that lucky.
